Shipments complete!
over 1 year ago – Thu, Apr 19, 2018 at 01:14:29 AM

Dear Backers, 

The last of our pre-orders were just shipped! We are immensely grateful for your patience while we were working on producing and shipping the Pocket Tripod PRO. None of this would have been possible without your support and confidence despite the long wait times.

This campaign surpassed our expectations in every way, and our small team worked non-stop to deliver the best product possible without sacrificing quality. We feel incredibly lucky to have backers like you who have supported us through it all. 

Your positive comments about the Pocket Tripod PRO has made all of the hard work worthwhile, and we truly appreciate it!

Missing your reward?

By now, everyone who had completed the Backerkit survey should have received their reward. Of course shipping to over 5,800 backers worldwide is no easy task, and a few shipments might have not reached their destinations. If you still haven't received your reward, please remind our support staff by emailing (Support@Pocket-Tripod.com) and we will investigate the situation and do everything possible to make sure that you receive your reward. 

If you have not yet answered the Backerkit survey, please email us directly for an equivalent store credit, as our survey page is now closed. 

Support Tickets.

We primarily respond to tickets received through our official support email (Support@Pocket-Tripod.com), and may miss your requests submitted though the comments section on Kickstarter or our social media channels. We are a small team and try to respond to every ticket as quickly as we can. But we have been experiencing a backlog which has caused late responses. We thank you for your understanding.

Discount Codes.

As promised, to thank you for waiting for the Pocket Tripod PRO for such a long time, we are providing you with Adapter discount codes that will expire in May of 2019. So you can keep up with your latest phones and cases for the next year, and only pay $2 + shipping per pair. You will receive a separate email with the discount codes and instructions. 

Filmmaker Collection by Moment

So in case you're wondering "what on earth that lens is?", it's the newest product made by our good friends at Moment. The anamorphic lens gives your phone the ability to shoot in cinematic widescreen with those awesome horizontal lens flares you see in every action movie. Their kit also comes with the lens filter seen below, plus a battery case and gimbal. They've ran an amazing campaign, raising well over $1.5M!

Seriously, you should check out their campaign if you haven't already, and get 20% off of the retail price. Their campaign ends tomorrow! 

Back the Filmmaker Collection by Moment

Your Pocket Tripod PRO will work flawlessly with Moment's Filmmaker Collection. Here are the recommended Adapters sizes for each of their cases:

Once again, from all of us at Geometrical, we thank you for your incredible support and patience. It's been a long ride, but well worth it, thanks to you!

Production Complete!
about 2 years ago – Sat, Sep 30, 2017 at 12:53:14 AM

Dear Backers, 
Thank you for your continued patience as we prepare your rewards. Since our last update, we’ve been producing components and assembling them non-stop.

 



Production speed 

We were experiencing a bottleneck in speed with producing the Adapter components, causing part shortages for the assembly line which resulted in delays. To fix that, we immediately began making a second set of molds for the Adapters, which became ready two weeks ago and increased the output to approximately 1000 tripods per day. Production of the inventory for our Kickstarter backers completed yesterday. Packaging is also in full swing. However, work will be on hold until the end of next week, due to a one-week national holiday in China.


Preparation for shipping

We expect to start shipping by October 16th approximately. We will post an update and send an email a few days in advance to remind you to finalize your reward selection and shipping address by Oct 12th. We won’t be able to make any changes after that because our fulfilment centers will need a few days to prepare the shipments (print shipping labels, pick & pack items, etc.) and won’t be able to make any changes after we submit the ship-list.
If you’ve pre-ordered any extra add-ons in BackerKit, your credit card will be charged for those items after Oct 6th. If the card that you’ve provided at the time of answering the survey is no longer valid, you will receive an automated email to let you know to update it.


iPhone X and iPhone 8/8+

If you plan on upgrading to the new iPhones, please update your size selection based on the following recommended sizes. (Safe for screen protectors) 

Bare iPhone 8        7.5 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Bare iPhone 8+      8.0 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Bare iPhone X        8.0 mm Pocket Tripod PRO

If you will be using a case, please add the case’s thickness to the sizes recommended above. If you don’t know your case’s thickness yet, you can measure it later using the included Fit Card and order the appropriate Adapters. 

Also, we recommend these sizes for the following devices: 

Bare iPhone 7 Plus Jet Black       7.5 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Bare Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+     8.0 mm Pocket Tripod PRO
Bare Samsung Note8                   8.5 mm Pocket Tripod PRO 


Adapter Discounts for Backers 

We know you’ve waited a long time to get your rewards, and we’re infinitely grateful for your patience. So we want to thank you by extending our Kickstarter pricing on Adapters for one whole year after you’ve received your reward ($2 instead of $5). After we ship, we will send you an email with a unique discount code.


Natural disaster victims 

If you’ve been affected by the recent hurricanes or earthquake, we hope that you are safe. Please let us know if you need us to hold your shipment until you’re ready. Otherwise, you can tell us to ship it to a new address on BackerKit.


Changes to your details

We’ll be keeping BackerKit open until October 12th, for anyone who needs to make changes to their address, or size/color selection.

Cancellations/Refunds 

Contrary to what some commenters may suggest, our policy has always been to offer hassle-free cancellations and refunds for anyone who chooses not to wait for the PRO version. If you need to cancel, simply let us know by emailing our support team, and we’ll take care of it for you right away.

Production Has Begun!
about 2 years ago – Thu, Jul 27, 2017 at 10:34:48 PM

Dear backers,  

We’re back from visiting our manufacturer and we’re excited to let you know that production is finally underway. During the last few days at the factory we had a chance to film the production process and we’ve put together a short video for you to see.

 

Why tooling has taken this long

Once we visited the factory, we realized that most of our manufacturer’s staff who had worked on making the first Pocket Tripod (2013) were no longer with the company. So the new engineers and mold builders who were making the current molds were not familiar with the intricacies of the product and were making mistakes, which caused delays due to rework. Of course, the staff change wasn’t something that they informed us about before we gave them the project.

It took us over 5 weeks of working with the manufacturer to identify and resolve the issues. We also used this opportunity to train the new staff and ensure that they fully understand our requirements and standards.

The injection molding process itself also required troubleshooting and optimization. The parts are incredibly sensitive to injection parameters, as well as the material composition. So we experimented with an exhaustive range of materials and settings to make sure that we’re getting perfectly consistent results.

Production status

We’ve already begun producing the components and will begin assembly and packaging as soon as we have enough build-up of parts. Making the adapters is especially time consuming, since each part needs to go through a secondary process to mold the soft-touch TPU over it. So we don’t want to promise any exact dates at the moment, as we can’t know for sure until each phase is complete. But our best estimate is that we should be at the packaging and shipping phase in four weeks.

Production Update 2
over 2 years ago – Wed, Jun 07, 2017 at 11:41:04 PM

Dear Backers, 

Thank you so much for patiently waiting while your rewards get ready to ship. Our manufacturer had promised to start production two weeks ago, but we’re told that they are facing challenges in obtaining consistent results. This comes as a surprise to us, given their past experience with making the Pocket Tripod, and the extended time they’ve spent on tooling. 

For this reason, we are flying to China next week to examine our manufacturer’s process. While there, we’ll troubleshoot and optimize their production methods and ensure that they are producing the products per our specifications and as fast as possible. We’ll also take this opportunity to give you a tour of the production process, which we’ll share with you in our next update. 

Our support team will remain in the US and will respond to any questions or requests that you may have within one business day.
(Support@Pocket-Tripod.com

We know that you’re anxiously waiting to get your hands on the Pocket Tripod PRO. We want you to know that we also share this feeling. In fact, we’ve ordered tens of thousands of them to keep up with the growing number of orders that we’ve been receiving. We're grateful for the amazing support. So rest assured, we feel an incredible sense of urgency as well, and we can't wait to ship them to you.

Production Update
over 2 years ago – Tue, May 02, 2017 at 12:41:37 AM

Dear backers,  

Thank you for your patience and for giving us the opportunity to make the best product possible. We do realize that there was a gap between this and our last update, but we did not have any concrete details from our manufacturer until now. 

The adjustments and debugging of the molds were scheduled to be complete by March 10th, but our manufacturer took longer than expected. They actually had to go through four additional rounds of adjustments to get the parts fitting just right. This was due to an accidental damage to a component’s mold, which forced them to remake it. 

Last week we received their latest samples. After close examination, we’ve determined that most components are ready for production, with only a small number requiring minor corrections, which are scheduled to be ready by the end of next week.

 

 

  

In the meantime, we’ve also been busy getting everything else prepared so to compress the time required for production and packaging. The Fit Cards that will be included in each package are ready.

 

 

Even these tiny boxes for holding adapters for anyone who’s ordered extras.

 

  

Also, the carbon fiber skeletons that get embedded in the legs of the tripod are prepped for production.

We’ll be keeping BackerKit open until we start shipping, for anyone who needs to make changes to their address, or size/color selection.

About the Pocket Tripod PRO’s fit 

The Pocket Tripod PRO’s soft-touch openings give them a stronger grip compared to our 2016 model. With that in mind, the sizes recommended on our device guide are still correct, but will give you a tight fit. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, or for less strain on your screen protector, we recommend switching to the next larger size. If you have any trouble with the fit once you receive your reward, please contact our support team, who will be happy to find a solution for you.

 

Cancellations/Refunds

Contrary to what some commenters may suggest, our policy has always been to offer hassle-free cancellations and refunds for anyone who chooses not to wait. If you need to cancel, please email our support team, and they’ll take care of it for you right away.
